I just finished the new issue of House Beautiful, which I look forward to reading every month. I always find wonderful ideas to take away. But I always feel a little put off when I see spread after spread of rooms which have been designed with all new furniture or completely refurbished furniture and fixtures. Isn't it okay to have old, worn pieces in our homes anymore? Of all the things in my home, the pieces I love most are worn, frayed and loved into aged perfection.
